New Bern Masons from people just like you.

arrived to give me a proposal for the work just one hour after my phone call. He was very professional. He spent about 15 minutes walking" the exterior with me. He pointed out all of the areas that needed repairing and explained to me what he would do to repair the cracks. He said cracks would need to be cleaned out with an angle grinder in preparation to accept the new mortar.
gave me a verbal bid for the repairs that seemed to be very reasonable considering all the work that would be needed. With a handshake I accepted his proposal. He said he could have his crew start work 7:30 AM the next morning.
and his crew arrived promptly at 7:30 and started working right away. The grinding caused way more dust than I anticipated. Clouds of mortar dust settled everywhere: sidewalks, patio, walls, landscaping and my large floor to ceiling windows. I was very concerned about the huge mess they were making. I had nothing to worry about. They did a terrific job cleaning up after themselves, washing all of the areas with a hose. The work areas were left clean and neat On the final walk thru I noticed a few areas that needed additional finishing.
apologized and fixed the areas with no complaint or hassle.
mentioned that he found an additional 30 cracks that we did not identify during our initial walk thru the day before. I don't doubt he found more cracks. Every time I look at those walls I seem to find cracks I haven't seen before. I expected to be hit with a large 50-60% increase for the additional work.
said he would honor the verbal bid he gave me of $1,715. A gesture that I very much appreciated! I ended up paying him a little more, $1850, because of his professionalism and his crew's quality work. I WOULD NOT HESITATE RECOMMENDING

"I had solicited several quotes for replacement of a ~20' walkway in front of my house from the sidewalk leading up to the porch. The walkway includes 3 steps." I received 4 very different solutions and quotes but decided to go with
after meeting with the owner. He provided a detailed explanation of his solution and pulled up his Angie's List ratings on his iPad for me to review. (This was before I had a membership to Angie's List.) The installation was scheduled within 2 weeks and was completed on the date promised. 6ver the past year i have received numerous compliments on the walkway. Early this summer I noticed that one of the pieces of slate had developed a very slight looseness. I called
and within 10 days a crew was at the house and the walkway was as good as new. (No charge). This is a first class company that does high quality at a fair price.

Masonry exteriors

Generally considered the highest quality choice for home exteriors, brick and stone are also almost maintenance free and will last as long as the house, though some repairs may be needed from time to time.

Contractors say homeowners with this trait are the most satisfied with home improvement projects.

 If your home has clay brick, this cracking could simply be caused by moisture in the environment, says Pruett. (Photo courtesy of Brick Doctor Corp)

Are the bricks on your house cracking and you fear there is a problem with your foundation? That may not be the case. Learn why your bricks may be cracking.

An indication of serious moisture being trapped behind masonry is efflorescence, which appears as a white powder or stain, says Rantanen. (Photo Courtesy of Jamison Home Services, LLC)

Even if your home looks safe from the outside, there are invisible hazards like moisture, radon and carbon monoxide you need to be on the lookout for.

Detergent soaking and low-pressure pressure washing (to avoid etching or swirling the surface) about $0.50-1.00/SF - ditto for the sealing. Minimum charge probably about $150. This is something you can easily do yourself if you are just a bit yard handy - rent a pressure washer (or use this job as excuse to buy one) - 1000-1500 psi one is all you want for this, a gallon of concrete/driveway washing detergent, a large paint brush for the sealer, and as much brick/stone/concrete sealer as you need for your area - could probably do yourself for about $0.50/SF. View a few online videos on how to pressure wash without leaving swirl or etch marks in brick/concrete.

gave me a very reasonable quote. They were courteous and friendly and "on-time". They dealt with my hectic schedule and delivered everything they promised, with a few helpful suggestions as well. So It actually turned out better than I had hoped for. I would recommend

for any concrete or masonary work and will be using them again in the future.
- Lisa G.

We had 3 bids, this was in the middle. It was clear when they came to give the bid that they knew what they were doing. There was no effort to up-sell the job.
They arrived on time, did exactly what they were supposed to do (even though they had some problematic weather -- hot and wet -- to contend with). And VERY importantly to me, they cleaned up afterwards so there was no

of them having worked here.
Because of the weather, the work took a couple days longer than originally expected, but there was no whining on their part, or additional payment sought. 3-4 different people worked on the job various days, but the core 2 were here all days. Very pleasant, personable, honest, and hard working guys.
I'm normally a severe critic with contractors, but there were only accolades to give in this case. A job very well done. They even suggested adding a slight flare to the top of the chimney to improve the weather resistance -- looks GREAT!! Absolutely no hesitation hiring them again if needed.
- Don B.

I was impressed with the professional initial interview and the the estimate form provided (broke down the jobs and showed the price in detail). They would build the front steps, not use prefabricated steps. I hired them and the job started on time. Workers were pleasant and professional.
When they were almost finished with the front steps, I noticed that the height of the top step into the house was higher than the others. This distressed me because that was the problem with the old staircase. The top step into the house was so high it caused people to trip. I made this clear during the initial interview. When I mentioned the problem to them, they denied that it was wrong and they continued working on the steps
I called the building inspector, who concurred with me.

corrected the mistake.
The completed job looks beautiful.

He has been punctual, reliable and offered several alternatives in order to save me money while still maintaining quality workmanship. He is able to think on his feet to come up with new solutions to problems as they arise. I worked with someone else who made a mess of things and he stepped in and fixed it all without hesitation and I am so happy with the experience. Things have turned out much, much better than I EVER expected them to be. My family and friends are blown away by the changes.
- Renay B.

Fantastic from first contact to last. Great price compared to other estimates, great communication and quality work.

and his crew are the absolute BEST. If you have any need for masonry work, do not look any further than this team of workers. They are fast, responsive, affordable, and most importantly the work is top notch and stunning.
They did the entire job in less than 4 days time. They even worked on a Saturday to catch up, since they did push their start date out by a little bit due to a delay. Not a big deal for us, and certainly nice to have progress made through the weekend.
Every detail was attended to. Nothing left undone. They clean up impeccably after each day of work.
Years ago we had them build a retainer wall in our backyard and the work was equally well done, and in a timely manner.

even thought to suggest a conduit to run beneath the driveway, so that we could run electrical through it, for a plug for my husbands hybrid electric car. We never would've thought of this and it saved us a huge headache for when the time comes to install that outlet!

- Carrie E.

He said he would be at my house at 5:30 pm to give me a quote for work I need done. He never showed and never called. I waited over an hour for this guy when I could have been spending time with my son the day before he went back to school. Obviously not the type of person I would trust with something as important as my home.
- tim B.

After three days of waiting for a response on an urgent issue, I've given up on him making contact with me to help me resolve my issue with the foundation of my house.
